Responding to the scarcity of research on early mathematics teaching profiles, this article reports on a novel assessment approach to identifying characteristics of early mathematics teaching occurring in early childhood settings. The new approach uses the interplay between teachers’ content knowledge in mathematics, knowledge of students and learning, and knowledge of how to teach mathematics effectively during the course of early mathematics as a proxy to identify quality of mathematics instruction provided. In this study, 210 pre-kindergarten to 3rd grade teachers in a large public school system in the Midwest were observed as they taught mathematics. The descriptive results revealed that the quality of mathematics instruction varies considerably among early childhood teachers. Some teachers are identified as delivering high quality mathematics instruction because they provide students with opportunities to fully and purposefully engage in deepening their understanding of important mathematics concepts, whereas others are rated as far lower in quality, because their mathematics teaching is procedural in terms of content emphasized and instructional strategies used. As a whole, observed quality of mathematics teaching was revealed to be mediocre. Implications of results for early math professional development are discussed.

Who will become the instruments for justice? It is none but the teachers, the women teachers. To instill proper values and to bring awareness to the younger generation, the teachers must be sensitized at first. The women who aspire for teaching profession must get proper knowledge, understanding and awareness regarding rights and privileges of Indian women. So, the investigator initiated to the present study on awareness of Female Understudy Educators regarding rights and privileges for women. The sample for study is selected from Female Understudy Educators in Chennai city Teacher Training Educational Institutions. The sample counted in Female Understudy Educators selected randomly from B.Ed Integrated and B.Ed Normal courses. From the present study the investigators could infer that, the Female Understudy Educators need more awareness related to personal, familial and social life. Even though there was moderate and high level of awareness for 92 per cent of the sample, eight per cent of the sample had low level of awareness. If the present trainees or the future teachers get awareness on social issues, they can impart this awareness to all the female students. It is essential that every citizen of India, especially every woman must have awareness about the constitutional and legal rights.

The implementation of learning model along with the manipulative tools is a key of achievement of mathematic learning. The combination of learning together model and manipulative tool of 7 in 1 box is one of options for teacher in teaching mathematic in elementary school, because it has great effect of learning outcomes. This study aims to find out the effectiveness of learning together model assisted with 7 in 1 box toward the result of mathematic learning on 4rth grade students of SDN Gugus Bisma. This is a quasi experimental study using nonequivalent pretest-posttest control group design. The population of 4th grade students of SDN Gugus Bisma was 135. Meanwhile, the sampling was conducted by using cluster sampling and it was obtained that 4th grade students of SDN 1 Sokawera as many as 30 students as experiment class and 4th grade of SDN 3 Sokawera as 25 students as control class. Data analysis by using z-test, gain and N-gain test, t-test. From the result of z-test it was obtained that z-table =1,64, on experiment class (z-score = 3,16) and control (z-score = 2.89). the result of analysis of gain test shows that the gain value of experiment class=22 and control class=15, meanwhile N-gain test shows that N-gain of experiment class= 0.58 and control class =0.40. both class show the increase of learning outcome of medium category. From T-test it was obtaine t-score (4.41) > t-table (1.705), thus Ho was rejected. The conclusion shows that the implementation of learning together assisted with 7 in 1 box effective in increasing the study result of mathematic on 4th grade students of SDN Gugus Bisma.

The study aims to developing lup instrument test for measurng higher order thinking skills of students in physics learning. The 4D stage of the model consists of define, planning, design, and disseminate stages. The assessment instrument was developed based on HOTS indicators include the ability to analyze (C4), evaluate (C5), and creat (C6). The test form is a reasoning multiple choice. Subject of this research were all student of XI MIA 1 and XI MIA2 on 2nd semester at SMA Negeri 1 Depok in academic year of 2017/2018. Result of this research are: 1) the higher order thinking skills test instrument proved valid and worthy of use in the learning process. Based on expert validation, the test is valid with Aiken V index value of 0.89, the average value and standard deviation of INFIT MNSQ is 1.01 ± 0.09, and has a good degree of difficulty with a range of difficulty levels between -1.29 to 1.35. The higher order thinking skills test can also be used to measure students higher order thinking skills in physics learning with very low to excellent categories.
